Note: As of November 2020, the Joy Jacket pattern has been updated to include sizes 0-30 as well as A/B and C/D cup options. Those who tested the update and submitted photos for this post have been added below.

I loved putting this post together. This is a HUGE thank you to 37 amazing people who volunteered their time and put so much effort into making the Joy pattern a reality for Chalk and Notch and for Emily. If you haven’t had a chance to read the story behind this pattern, I’d love for you to check out this post here. I really don’t have the words to express how grateful I am to these testers. I simply could not do my job without their help.

I love working with my internet friends and making new friends during every test. I used to be nervous about starting a test, but now I really look forward to this time where I get to connect with others who share the love of patternmaking and sewing. I can tell you that all of my testers absolutely delivered. They gave detailed feedback, made the process so fun, and because of them, this pattern is one I’m really proud of. I hope you enjoy this roundup of these amazing versions and feel inspired to make your own!
